The proposed bylaw amendments are based off of recommendations from the Affordable Housing Task Force formed by Council to provide solutions to the challenge of affordable housing in Okotoks. Council directed Administration to prepare amendments to the Land Use Bylaw that ease the regulations around creating secondary suites within a primary dwelling as well as accessory dwelling units.
The proposed changes reduce the requirements and regulations that have been prohibitive for homeowners to develop suites in the past to increase this type of housing as an option for Okotoks residents.

Please note that there is a Public Hearing scheduled for April 22 in the Municipal Centre Council Chamber (5 Elizabeth Street) for residents to voice any concerns they may have.
